13Power of Welsh Ministers to appoint additional governors
This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

(1)This section applies if the Welsh Ministers have the power to intervene in the conduct of a maintained school.

(2)The Welsh Ministers may appoint as many additional governors to the governing body of the school as they think fit; and the instrument of government for the school has effect as if it provided for such appointments (despite anything in the regulations under section 19 of the Education Act 2002).

(3)The Welsh Ministers may nominate one of those governors to be the chair of the governing body in place of any person who has been elected as chair of that body.

(4)Before making any such appointment or nomination in relation to a voluntary aided school, the Welsh Ministers must consult—

(a)the person who appoints the foundation governors, and

(b)if the school has a religious character, the appropriate religious body.

(5)A governor appointed under this section is to hold office for a period determined by the Welsh Ministers.

(6)A governor nominated by the Welsh Ministers to be the chair of the governing body is to be the chair for a period determined by the Welsh Ministers.

(7)The Welsh Ministers may pay remuneration and allowances to governors appointed under this section.

(8)Where the Welsh Ministers have exercised their power under this section in relation to any school—

(a)the local authority may not suspend the governing body’s right to a delegated budget under paragraph 1 of Schedule 15 to the School Standards and Framework Act 1998, and

(b)if the local authority has already exercised that power or its power under section 8, the Welsh Ministers may revoke the suspension.

(9)Where the Welsh Ministers have exercised their power under this section in relation to a voluntary aided school, nothing in regulations under section 19 of the Education Act 2002 is to be read as authorising the appointment of foundation governors for the purpose of outnumbering the other governors as augmented by those appointed by the Welsh Ministers under this section.

(10)The revocation of a suspension under subsection (8)(b)—

(a)must be notified to the local authority in writing, and

(b)takes effect from the date specified in that notification.
